Ukraine’s National Police nabbed four suspects, who reportedly ran six fake cryptocurrency exchanges in the country. They were arrested last week from Dnipro city, after which their homes were raided, and several computers and smartphones were seized. The police do not have any report on the stolen funds yet.

The alleged culprits lured users by promoting the exchanges with fake positive ratings and online reviews. The police reportedly said that the suspects had “special knowledge and skills in the field of programming” and “have created their own CMS-system for managing the content of exchange sites.”

During the raid of the suspects’ homes, the police reportedly seized computers, flash drives, smartphones, and other devices. According to a spokesperson for the Ukrainian National Police, “the list of sites is not complete.” Now authorities are asking users to provide information about whether they were deceived by fraudulent exchanges before.

Last Wednesday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission received an additional emergency court order to freeze the assets of Dominic Lacroix, owner of PlexCorps. Lacroix and his partner, Sabrina Paradis-Royer, were accused of violating securities law in respect to the PlexCoin initial coin offering (ICO) conducted by PlexCorps in August last year. The ICO reportedly raised $15 million from “thousands of investors.”

“Novo-BR” is one of the oldest operators of the Belarusian gambling business. The company was established in 1993. Currently it owns the casino “U Admirala” and the slot machine halls in the hotels “Orbita” (Minsk) and “Tourist” (Gomel).

According to the Register of Special Permits (Licenses) for Gambling Activities, as of June 1, 2018, 106 companies owned gambling licenses. This year, five companies were granted permits to open casinos, slot machines and bookmaker offices. Establishments will be located in Minsk, Polotsk, Brest, Grodno and on the M-1 motorway in Dubrovno district.

Euro Games Technology has signed one more contract with Pasha Global Group this time for the delivery of more 516 slot cabinets and multiplayer terminals for the operator’s casinos in Suriname, Nicaragua, Guyana, Uganda and Bulgaria. This is a natural continuation of a partnership, considered as highly successful from both sides, which began 7 years ago with the first Vega Vision upright machines that set foot in Pasha’s establishments. Nowadays over 1000 installed cabinets of EGT from all its product range contribute with their high performance and reliability for the strong business relations between the companies.

It is rewarding, motivating and a pleasure to liaise with such a partner, to witness its international progress and to be part of its growth and success,” shared Nadia Popova, director of EGT’s office for Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico. “Pasha Global’ standards are exacting and to keep up the good work with such a dynamic, ambitious company have also contributed to our own development as a manufacturer, supplier and a key player in the global gaming industry.

Pasha Global Group is headquartered in Paramaribo, Suriname, and for 15 years already is a highly-regarded company that invests, develops and manages hotels and casinos in various countries on three continents. Subject of its new contract with EGT will be the best-performing in their gaming establishments P-27/32H St slot model, the P-42V St Curved cabinet – a new generation machine with contemporary frameless glass design, the Super Premier 75 – another deal winner that has no analogue in the industry with its 75-inch portrait oriented curved display, the 4-level progressive jackpots Egypt Quest and Fu Gui Rong Hua (a Chinese-themed product with especially designed games where all reels are in play). The widely preferred Fruits Collection 2 multigame mix of 48 fruit titles will accompany the delivered slot cabinets, apart from the jackpot solutions. Pasha Global have also opted for the latest S32/32/32 terminal of EGT Multiplayer’s S-Line series – a suitable model for those who would like to combine the roulette game, monitored with HD real-time video streaming, with the video slots from the King Collection mix and the 4-level mystery Jackpot Cards.

The results of our EGT products are more than excellent – our partner is a leading supplier for Suriname and other countries in the region, but what is equally important to us is the professional approach, the way we are serviced and the technical support,” said Erdener Yakici, executive director of Pasha Global. “We know that we may rely on the EGT quality in every aspect of our relations. This is why we constantly expand the floor space for their machines.

Another example of the efficient cooperation between both companies is the online casino of Pasha Global. It became active three years ago and from the beginning chose EGT Interactive for its sole gaming content supplier. Ever since its management reports constantly improving results on a monthly basis.
